I am using KTorrent to download ISO files and find it very slow downloading
the files. Can someone tell me what download client to use for ISO files that support resume download and which can download very fast.
It's not Ktorrent's fault - Ktorrent is only a client for BitTorrent p2p network and if there aren't many peers with good upload speeds your download will be slow. If you're downloading iso there is a chance that the site will also have direct http or ftp downloads - you can use them as they are often faster (it's more ethical to use torrent though especially on non-commercial sites as you don't use up their bandwidth). For http or ftp downloads you can use Kget.
if you are using a torrent client the the speed depends on the amount of seeders seeding the client also your isp speeds and your settings you have on any firewall or anytype of filters you have to filter your internet I use ktorrent and my speeds can go up to and above 1Mbs and as low as 1kbs but I usually average aroung 700Kbs
